Interview On Radio Station WNNX (99X)
August 14, 1997
    On the morning of August 14, Atlanta radio station 99X had a live interview with Tori on the phone during the Morning X program. This interview gave some of the earliest hints as to the Tori's new album for 1998. You can read a transcript of the entire interview. I must thank Toriphile Jenn for sending this to me!

    Here is a summary:

  • Tori said she was in the tropics writing the new album. She said she would begin recording October 1st in Cornwall, England in some old stables! The only details she would give about the new album were the quotes below.

  • "It's a whole different work than the others I've done, and I'm working with players I've never worked with before. I'm cutting with drums from day one, which is a new one for me."

  • "I've really got 3 weeks to finish writing this thing, and I have 6 songs that aren't done."

  • One interviewer asked her if there was a man in her life inspiring the new album. She said yes, and that she was very lucky to be in her current relationship. The DJ then said, "So happy pop songs coming from Tori Amos?" and Tori simply replied, "Shock and amazement. Sit down. Nobody will be interested, but yeah, I have joy in my life."

  • Tori talked at length about RAINN, thanking 99X for raising $82,000 through the sale of their Live X III CD. She also talked about men and her experiences with them.
